An evening of music, dancing and a raffle to benefit Heather Jardin, an Island leukemia patient, will be held Saturday, March 22 from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Portuguese-American Club on Vineyard avenue in Oak Bluffs.
Music will be provided by The Mercy Beat and Sugar Bowl bands. Donations of $20 are requested, and event coordinator Chris White of Edgartown Pizza has lined up a raffle of donated gifts to help the 27-year-old Vineyard Haven resident in her recovery from acute AML leukemia.
Ms. Jardin is in remission. She began chemotherapy treatment at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston in January, shortly after being diagnosed.
Ms. Jardin is looking forward both to Saturday night and completion of her treatment protocol in June.
“I’m feeling really positive, that’s the only way to get through something like this,” she said this week.
